Bed Bug Bites opens with the functional but forgettable "Taxes," an acid house workout that offers nothing new, but serves as a good introduction to Seixlack's distinctive production style: grimy analogue squelches, elastic bass and beats that seem to constantly push into the red. It's a well-judged mixture that is luckily joined by more interesting musical ideas for the remainder of the EP.
"Amolado," for instance, features what sounds like old-school dial-up or hard-drive noises, a touch that perfectly fits the analog vibes here, while the slightly less impressive "Wintergreen" opens with almost two-and-a-half minutes of empty beat before a serpentine bass line arrives. Not much else happens, but its groove is infectious. Final track "Sofazone" is the EP's highlight, a song made for kicking it on the couch rather than the dance floor, featuring a laid-back 808 beat and cool vintage pads that will evoke the '90s no matter who you listened to.
This is a solid EP for those who like a little bit of grime with their grooves. (X-Kalay)
